At the Sony press conference for Sony, a metaphorical bomb was dropped. As per the rumors (http://home.eyesonff.com/content.php/3590-E3-Rumor-VII-remake-for-the-PS4) earlier today, Final Fantasy VII has been announced to be remade for PlayStation 4.

"Play it FIRST on PS4".

It's another "put it on our platform exclusively for a month or two" deals. Not truly PS4 exclusive.



Tell me when Genesis shows up, so that I can know not to buy it.

Now, now, Microsoft fans deserve some FFVII, too.

And seeing that FFVII was never a PlayStation exclusive, but was on PlayStation first before going to PC, I don't see the issue here.

They're not going to put it on the Genesis. It was on Playstation first because they wanted it on disks and not cartridges, so no worries there.

And the trailer gives the impression of an all-in remake. Which is good, cause it needs to be worth it after all this time, but a little scary b/c the trailer seems to be hinting at heavy compilation tie-in. Regardless, hopes are up. Dang you, SE.

Edit: I think Skyblade was talking about Genesis, the character from the compilation.

Dude, I'm not gonna lie, I was trying to be stoical, but when those first few chimey notes dropped in from the opening theme as the camera was panning up Cloud from behind, my breath caught in my throat.

They had to go and ruin one of the most important and meaningful scenes in the entire game.

It's bad enough they're undoubtedly going to give us emo Cloud. I won't get it if Genesis is put in.

Sky, I feel ya, I do, but fact is people are impatient trouts and will get the game on the first system it comes out on because they'll want to play it now rather than wait, so companies are going to keep doing it.

Now, pardon me while I return to squealing like a little girl.

After 6 years of vaguely hoping but never truly believing, to all of a sudden be thrust into this reality is very strange. Now let's hope they don't mess it up!

Everyone imagine your favourite Final Fantasy VII moment. Remember the scene and the characters and the music. Now imagine that redone on the PS4.

At the very least, this is going to be unrivalled as nostalgia trips go.

It would be kindof neat to see more of a response from millennial gameres vs. nostalgic ones. Could be a huge boost for the franchise.

Semi-Called It!


Japanese fans especially have been demanding an FFVII remake quite strongly, and with Type-0 finally being released outside of Japan - the odds are, assuming that SQEX continue their current business practices, that an FFVII remake is going to happen in the not too distant future.

Plus 2017 is the 20th Anniversary of FFVII... so, the stars are aligning here.

I wonder if they'll really have the balls to include the Honeybee Inn stuff, and then I remember this is Japan. Of course they'll have the smurfing balls!

I wonder how Tifa and Aerith are going to look. The visuals for this game already look better than the CGI in Advent Children.

Fox

That was just a posturing narration. It's like "the events of FFVII happened and look at the world now... but now let's relive those events!" Just a slightly dumb way to build up to the announcement. Like when they had that bit about 'the fifteenth coming' on the Versus XIII trailer 2 years ago when the name changed. It wasn't related to the game at all it was just there to make people lose their minds. Same deal here ^_^

I do wonder how much of the extended canon if any they'll try and work in. Like for me... I'd really like to see Zack's role expanded a bit where appropriate from the events of Crisis Core. But similarly I don't want to see Genesis ever again as long as I live. So it's give and take.

Bear in mind what we've seen so far is​ CGI. None of this is in-engine.

I don't care. Rational ToriJ is gone. He has been replaced with squeally fangirl ToriJ. Squeally fangirl ToriJ is going to save up money to buy a PS4, swap out the GameCube to make room for it, buy the game, play it, review it, and have a full body orgasm while doing so.

I suspect this was the reason Nomura was taken off as director of FFXV.

Point, although in some ways this is the best one for Nomura to direct. FFVII was his first character design job for the franchise - I expect he holds it very dear indeed.

Yeah, that's the problem, though. Artists tend to want to try new things and infuse new ideas when they redo their old special works, typically ruining what made the thing great in the first place. (E.g. Lucas with Star Wars).

Yeah, a Wii U port is unlikely. This may be put on Xbox One later, and maybe even PC with how many FF titles have been going there lately. Plus, I think Nintendo's new system the NX will be out by the time this game is released.

I like to think it was all because of Loony BoB's project that this happened.

Anyways, I'd laugh if this took the same route as Versus XIII. Just a concept trailer that doesn't pay off for another 10 years. I doubt that would be the case. I have no super attachment to the game, and a lot of what I love from the game involves the sometimes weird translation, spelling errors, blocky graphics, etc etc. That charm won't be there, but I'm pretty interested in seeing how this will play out. They could do a lot to capture the nostalgia and atmosphere from the first game while improving aspects that didn't quite live up to what they were intending to convey. There is a lot of pretty adult things though that would cause issues at this point if they wanted to avoid an M rating. I almost feel like inevitably there will be some things lost and some things added that everyone will hate, but I hope it turns out great despite that!

Loony BoB hurry up and make another "FF moments (http://home.eyesonff.com/showthread.php/160354-Final-Fantasy-VII-Moments)" thing, we may get another remake.. lol

I like to think it was all because of Loony BoB's project that this happened.

Don't say it! Don't even think it! Didn't your mother tell you that if you think bad thoughts they will come true?

Though I agree I doubt it'd be the case, especially if this is the reason FFXV has been taking so long. I think they're shooting for a 2017 release date for the anniversary. That gives me time to hopefully bag myself a PS4.

I have a feeling there isn't a lot of work done on this, and I HIGHLY doubt that this project is the reason XV has taken so long. I wouldn't be surprised if this is partially why Nomura was taken off the Versus project, but we'll see.

Type-0 is an M rating, but it was always meant to be a more adult title I think. It's hard to say if they'd do that for a mainline title though, even if a remake. We'll just have to wait and see what we do since we don't have anything really to go off of outside of the announcement trailer. We can say for certain that Midgar, Barret, and Cloud are present, but who knows outside of that, haha.

It's gonna be curious to see how they're gonna do some of the game's quirkier moments (Honey Bee Inn, Cloud crossdressing...) in HD. If they cut them out, it's not gonna be a real remake.

Also, "This guy are sick" line or riot.

I personally wouldn't be bothered if they did, but if they've learned anything these last couple of years they may leave it in.

I could think of a way they could do the "this guy are sick" line without it being jarring since they'll be voice acting this time around. Have Cloud go, "What?" when it's said and then Aerith corrects herself. Play it off as a slip of the tongue.

I heard rumours that an FFVII remake was going to be announced, but I refused to believe it until I seen it. Now that I've seen it, I can't believe it! It's actually happening!

With Nomura running the show I don't think it'll be the traditional turn based JRPG that people are expecting it to be, but who knows. I look forward to finding out more.

Also the music really makes me want to watch Advent Children again.

We'll see. Sure, they announced it and had a trailer and all, but there's plenty of time for them to drop the ball, back-pedal and generally wuss out.

If it actually happens, I'll be chuffed. If it's a faithful remake that ups the visuals, and tweaks the dialogue but retains the core gameplay underneath, I'll be very pleased indeed.

My biggest worry is that Nomura's directing this remake. I don't think he has the talent, and I'd be worried he'll turn it into a retconned cluster-smurf of his favourite tropes and cliches.

Oh yeah, I forgot Nomura doesn't really do the turn-based thing.

I don't think they'll get rid of Cloud's cross dressing. I mean, it's not like we haven't seen it in real life or on TV. Several animes have done it in the past. Thinking back to the Honeymoon Inn, it was innocent enough. The one thing they might consider removing is the rather suggestive bit when you're go through door number 2, but I could be remembering that wrong. I don't think the hot tub scene is a big enough deal to cut out. Then again, people these days do like to make a big deal out of nothing. I'm reminded of how Fox reacted to the ME1 love scene, despite it being nothing we haven't seen on prime time television.

I personally wouldn't be bothered if they changed things that were optional in the original game to begin with.

There's too much to read through on this thread, but I'll remain reserved and hopeful they don't ruin it. I'm afraid they're going to retcon the main character's personalities to match what all the other games in the franchise have turned them into.

The only thing I figured was less likely to come out for the Playstation 4 than Final Fantasy 15 was a remake of FF7.

So congrats FF15. You're now probably not happening on the system. Either that, or they're hoping people may forgive them for it not being very good by releasing a sure thing with the FF7 remake.

I sound bitter, but I just have very little faith left in the company. They can make a pretty Final Fantasy, but I'm waiting to see if they can still make a good Final Fantasy.

My only concern is that they'll rip the comedy heart out of VII in the remake. Do not misunderstand. VII was a deep, thought-provoking game with several mature themes. But throughout the game was a quirkiness about it. The Honey Bee Inn and the part with Don Corneo practically summarizes this in one neat package. Those parts were important in their own right.

Now, you could make a scene like the screenshot above because graphics. But of course, with the new updated remake, it is going to just look awkward. That scene aside, I'm really hoping they retain the humor VII had. That offbeat, slightly innuendo-y humor.

Oh, and Barret and Cid's swearing. Ha! Oh wow.

Yeah I've been basically twitching around since finding this out this morning (heard the rumours, didn't believe them for a second) that was one long day at work!

AAAAAAAAAAAA

Of course, it'll be "darker", the humour will be sucked out, Don Corneo and Honey Bee will be nowhere to be seen, Mr Dolphin will turn out to be a robotic rocket thing, there will be no overworld, battles will be hack-n-slash, all the puzzles will be removed like the route up to Shinra HQ and the floors up there, cait sith will be minus the moogle and airship navigation will be menu based.

I'm fully expecting them to give the gameplay an overhaul - I don't expect turn based either, from SE's POV it's got to appeal to a new audience and that system is quite old fashioned. If it's a remake I expect them to do more than just update the graphics and sound!

I don't mind that either, as long as they stay true to the original story and don't cut or change things in that regard.

Fox

On the other hand, turn based is easier to make than something high action with lots of physics to worry about. Staying true to the original would help them keep the budget and development time under control.

I'm excited. Interesting that everyone is saying 'is this detail in it, is that detail in it'. If you want everything that was in the original FFVII then go play it again. It's still pretty good.

I do expect they'll retain the spirit of the original and keep the major events and gameplay intact. They may update the ATB to be a quicker or more automated but I don't expect it to be an action RPG or anything like that. SE has lost our faith in many ways but they're not completely lost.

I like to think that during their rehab of sorts they realized, "People want a FFVII Remake. Let's give it to them." Of course, that means there's no way it's coming out by 2017 with how big of a project it'd be, but I'm not bothered. We'll probably get the HD port or something in 2017.

I really hope they don't mess this up. If they decide to do a total re-write of the story making it a different or "more this age" game might suck. They did it right back then but I don't remember any of that trailer in the game so it could be possible it is not the FFVII we all loved but could be something more like XIII.

If it don't start out like this I won't like it. :P

I really hope they don't mess this up. If they decide to do a total re-write of the story making it a different or "more this age" game might suck. They did it right back then but I don't remember any of that trailer in the game so it could be possible it is not the FFVII we all loved but could be something more like XIII.

Considering the original game came out in 1997 with all the limitations of the first PlayStation, and Midgar was bigger than what we got to see, it doesn't come as a surprise we'll get to see more of it in a PS4 remake that wasn't shown the first time around. I doubt we'll get another FFXIII after everything they worked on since being much better than that. Not that it's hard to make something better than FFXIII, mind you.

Obviously, but since most of the things people went nuts over regarding Versus XIII/XV was when he was the director, I don't have a lot of reason to doubt him right now.

Apperently a big reason they are doing it now is that the felt if they waited to much longer, they would be to old to do it, and wanted this game done with the original staff.

Also, Cross Dressing scene will still be there, and it sounds like there may be tweeks to the story.

Happy to hear they've already been working on it for a year and wanted to do it with the original members, and frankly I agree with him. Why have the same exact game on the same console? Tweaks to the story sound better than a complete rehaul for those concerned. It could also just mean they're ironing out plot holes from the original game.

I'm even more interested for more information now when winter comes.

They will inevitably miss a lot of the little touches that make the original what it is. To recreate everything as it was in a 1080 3D environment would just be too much of an ask, I think.

Yeah I think if people want a like-for-like facsimile of FFVII then they're going to be disappointed. It's been 20 years, there's nothing wrong with changing and adding things. For one, they're surely going scrap all of the towns and map layouts as they were designed for PS1. If they have brand new HD layouts for the likes of Midgar - and have it be a real bustle! - and Cosmo Canyon that capture the original feel it'd be incredible.

Ayen

The Resident Evil Remake added stuff that wasn't in the original and look how well that turned out.

I'm really liking the idea of possibly being able to explore more of Midgar this time around. They had how many sectors? Eight? And we only saw a couple of them in the original game? Imagine being able to explore all of the sectors in-between the main quest. That'd be smurfing awesome! Make the reveal that Midgar is just one town an even bigger mindblown moment than in the original.

Also, remember how awesome it was seeing those giant summons in FFXV?

Imagine the Weapons getting the same treatment. Holy troutballs that'd be awesome and terrifying all at once, especially the way Ruby and Emerald were introduced. Emerald Weapon's appearance was scary enough with the polygons, I can't imagine how crazy it'd be with current gen tech.

I like to think that during their rehab of sorts they realized, "People want a FFVII Remake. Let's give it to them." Of course, that means there's no way it's coming out by 2017 with how big of a project it'd be, but I'm not bothered. We'll probably get the HD port or something in 2017.

Remember the PC port they trolled us with last year? Nomura has said that the remake was in the works before that, so it's been at least a year in development already. With that in mind I can see it coming in 2017, assuming they're using the XV game engine (not having to build a game engine knocks a good 2/3 years off a development).

EDIT: I read further and see you have already discovered that. ^^

I'm excited. Interesting that everyone is saying 'is this detail in it, is that detail in it'. If you want everything that was in the original FFVII then go play it again. It's still pretty good.

I do expect they'll retain the spirit of the original and keep the major events and gameplay intact. They may update the ATB to be a quicker or more automated but I don't expect it to be an action RPG or anything like that. SE has lost our faith in many ways but they're not completely lost.

I wonder if this announcement means that they are officially out of ideas. I always expect them to do this as the last effort to save the company.I agree with pretty much all this. Both the excitement, and the "out of ideas" part. I'd say the current creative team at Square-Enix don't really have what it takes to make something new with a similar scope and immersion compared to their earlier successes. But those earlier successes were so significant that they perhaps deserve a re-telling. Like others are saying, it'd be great to have a chance to explore that world in more detail, seeing more of Midgar and everywhere else. Minor story edits sounds like a good thing, too, if they're used only to remove ambiguity or confusion.

Oddly, you can already pre-order the game even though it doesn't yet have a release year, let alone a release date: https://www.ebgames.co.nz/ps4-208749-Final-Fantasy-VII-Remake-Placeholder-Price-PlayStation-4

When browsing elsewhere I see some people are calling bulltrout on Nomura's statements, so I hope they're proven wrong when we get more information about the game. Japan has been guilty of stranger things, so I have no reason to believe Nomura is lying.

I hope they're using the same game engine, too. Not sure why they wouldn't.

What are they suggesting?

As you say, unless they have specific evidence to suggest he's lying - he probably isn't. It seems pretty likely he was taken off XV specifically to work on VII and when did Tabata take over XV? Late 2013? 2014? I imagine when that happened, that's the moment where pre-production on VII started.

From Final Fantasy VII Ultimania Omega:[1] (http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Shinra_(Final_Fantasy_X-2)#cite_note-ultimania-0)
Shinra is a boy who supports the Gullwings, the group which the main protagonist, Yuna, belongs to. He carries a name that gives him an association to the Shin-Ra Company, and he is researching a method that could utilize the energy of "the life force that flows through our planet." The results of this cannot be seen in FFX-2, but maybe one day his descendants will establish a "company that supplies the energy of the planet"?In the Final Fantasy X-2 Ultimania Kazushige Nojima (http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Kazushige_Nojima) said the following:[1] (http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Shinra_(Final_Fantasy_X-2)#cite_note-ultimania-0)

After quitting the Gullwings, Shinra received enormous financial support from Rin, and began trying to use Vegnagun to siphon Mako Energy from the Farplane. But, he is unable to complete the system for utilizing this energy in his generation, and in the future, when traveling to distant planets becomes possible, the Shin-Ra Company is founded on another world, or something like that.......

2013? My boy, people have been asking me my gender since the 1990's. You underestimate my power.

25. In an attempt to keep this somewhat on topic, I was either seven or eight when I played FFVII for the first time. How old did you think I was?

I honestly feel like this is video game history.

I'm right there with you. I feel like a kid again.

OMG THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING!

I feel the same way, best video game news ever! Really cannot wait to hear more this winter and I am liking what we have heard from Nomura in the interviews so far. He seems to have the right mindset for it.
